What’s old(-ish) is new again in the December issue of Cosmopolitan, which features Miley Cyrus in a few familiar-looking fashions. (BONUS: They’re all SFW! Safe to ~look at~, we mean.) Cyrus wears a jewel-encrusted sheer overlay dress on the cover that reminds us of a.) confetti (perhaps in celebration of her recent 2014 tour announcement?), and b.) the vintage Dolce & Gabbana 2-piece she wore to walk the red carpet at this year’s VMAs. Can someone pass us the hot glue gun? We’re feeling inspired.

• Calling all couch potatoes! If you're still looking for a way to pay homage to your favorite small screen characters this Halloween, look no further! We've got you covered.
• At the 30th Annual Night Of Stars Gala earlier this week, Miley Cyrus made mouths drop when she wore an absurd amount of clothing (by recent Miley-standards, anyway)—and we were pleasantly surprised.
• Maybe you've heard that Kimye's engaged. If this is new news to you, we're guessing you were just born, in which case, WOW, your reading comprehension is superb for your age. Wanna peep the 15-carat ring Kanye gave Kim? (Spoiler alert: It's HUGE.)
• You know what goes well with a 15-carat engagement ring (besides a Kanye)? A show-stopping wedding dress, that's what. Check out the four gorgeous gowns that we hand-picked for Kim to wear when she weds West.
• UGH. Thanks a lot, celebrities. Our plans for winter hibernation have been foiled, now that you guys have officially made going shirtless a "thing." *sigh*

Rihanna for British 'GQ.'

Trick or treat? JK, you don’t get to choose. You get both! You’re welcome. Actually, thank Rihanna, because she’s the one that’s appearing on two different magazine covers in December. And TBH, I think we could all learn something about time management from Rih—because seriously, how did she manage to squeeze in two different magazine covers (for different countries, no less) in between all of the touring, marketing, shopping, smoking, grinding, TV show producing and shark diving she's been doing these days? SHEW. *wipes brow* #impressed.
Katy Perry performs at Lakewood High School in Lakewood, Colorado.

Katy Perry amped her schoolgirl style up BIG TIME this morning when she gave a private performance to students and faculty at Lakewood High School in Lakewood, Colorado. The spirited pop singer, who celebrates her 29th birthday today, looked homecoming-ready in a bedazzled version of the school’s ~actual~ cheerleading uniform: a black and orange striped two-piece representing the Lakewood Tigers. The students of Lakewood won Good Morning America’s "'Roar’ With Katy Perry Contest," by creating a viral lip-dub video to her hit song in one single-shot take, and thus, were rewarded with a special appearance by KP, Queen of the Jungle herself.
Lady Gaga in Berlin.

NOPE. That is not, in fact, a whimsical wood nymph extra from a German production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Nor is it a newly escaped patient from a nearby psych ward. That wide-eyed, big-haired, barefoot woman is, of course, Lady Gaga, making another dramatic exit from her hotel in Berlin. Of course. Yesterday, Gaga left the Ritz wearing this confusing attachment, and today, she goes sans shoes. We understand the want to wiggle your toes freely, especially when they're constantly being stuffed into 12-inch platform stilettos, but isn't that a little unsanitary? Just sayin'. Also, is that chalk on your legs? Did you take a tumble during a game of hopscotch? So many questions.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that the ‘90s are back in full effect. From the crop-top takeover of fall Fashion Week to the re-emergence of our favorite pop groups (i.e. *NSYNC, TLC), it’s high time we show some appreciation for the decade now-defined by the World Wide Web. (Yup. The first website was created in 1990, and by 1999, the Internet was mainstream. Free history lesson!) Don’t act like you’re not nostalgic.
There was also a lot of RULL good lady-based pop culture that came out of the ‘90s, so we’ve put together three classic outfits from our favorite female icons for your Halloween enjoyment. (In addition to our picks, we've also rounded up instructions for how to be Daria, The Craft and Cher Horowitz, because we're the bomb like that.) And let’s be honest: it's pretty much the 11th hour in terms of finding a costume, so if you don’t have one yet, you’re praaahbably the kind of person who tends to DIY day-of. Lucky for you, these are PERFECT for that level of laziness. (No offense.) Fashion fiends (or hoarders of epic proportions) will likely have more than half of these costume components in their closet already, so put back those pre-packaged sexy food costumes and start practicing your throwback slang, beyotch.
COREY MASON FROM 'EMPIRE RECORDS'

We mustn’t dwell. No, not today. Not on
REX MANNING DAY Halloween! Corey Mason (Liv Tyler) was the good girl with a bad streak from Empire Records, the 1995 movie about a group of misfit teens trying to keep an indie record store afloat. Damn the man, save the empire! Corey was a total babe, and is basically the embodiment of '90s comeback trends with her fuzzy cropped sweater, plaid skirt and combat boots. You’re gonna need your store badge to slip into the back room and woo Rex Manning, but don't forget to wear your ~most~ sexy red bra for your grand seduction. (Bonus points if you bake cupcakes for the occasion. After all, there are 24 usable hours in every day.) If that doesn’t work out though, you’ve always got your studies, so make sure to have your notebook handy and lay off those Jesse Spano caffeine pills!
Happy 27th birthday, Drake! Here, we got you this bespoke Calvin Klein wardrobe for your “Would You Like A Tour” tour. Generous, we know. You’re welcome! JK JK LOL, we WISH that had been our idea. We considered making you bespoke cupcakes in your likeness, but quickly realized that our baking skills are lacking. Your face is hard to draw with frosting! It's the thought that counts though, right? Lucky for Drake, he is actually getting custom stage outfits by CK (just not from us).
Demi Lovato for 'Glamour Mexico.'

For the November cover of Glamour Mexico, Demi Lovato sets her leather jackets aside and instead, opts for old Hollywood allure (which is all the rage right now, BTW). Wearing a mauve, ruffle-front keyhole gown, the "Let It Go" singer's classic look get accessorized with chunky, crystal-drop earrings, a single gold ring and matching scarlet nails and lips. AH-OO-GA! *cue cartoon-y eyes popping out from their sockets* Doesn't she look lovely? Demi's long locks are set with thick, glamorous blonde waves. Guess we still need to wait a little longer for her new blue hair to make its editorial debut.
Pharrell and Solange at the eBay Today launch

Solange and Pharrell both have inimitable style, and each artist is almost known as much for their fierce fashion sense as they are for their music. (Almost.) So, it's no wonder that eBay tapped the two (along with a slew of other influential creatives) to curate personal collections for the site's new social element, eBay Today.
Today allows users to create profiles and collections (not unlike Pinterest), filled with inspirational/want-worthy items found around eBay. But the best part is, you can ~actually~ buy the things people post—including items directly plucked up by Knowles and Williams. SO. COOL. To help you get started down the rabbit hole of inspirational shopping, we picked out five of the coolest items from both artists' collections. Check them out after the jump, and visit eBay Today to peep the site's newest feature in full.
